                                   ***CHANGES TO ALL APPOINTMENT BOOKINGS***


CORONAVIRUS UPDATE***
The Wooda Surgery remains open for business however in order to protect our most vulnerable patients, our staff and Doctors we have made some temporary changes to our access to the building and our appointment booking process.


Due to the latest government advice, we are trying to slow the spread of the Coronavirus -COVID-19. We are therefore using a full Telephone Triage system as from Monday 16th March to reduce the visits to the surgery by people with symptoms of "a new fever" or "a new cough".



If you have either of these symptoms, please do not contact the practice in the first instance. Please use NHS 111 online where full triage can be made and advice and guidance given. If you are unable to access the internet for this, please call NHS 111.


If you do not have any of these symptoms but still need to access healthcare, please call our Reception team where a Telephone Triage appointment can be booked.


Patients requiring other routine appointments, i.e. blood tests and regular dressings will be screened accordingly by our Reception team.


Please note that our intercom system will be in operation on the doors into the practice for any patients attending for their booked appointment or general enquiries to enable us to manage the flow of patients in and out of the practice.


We thank you in advance for your cooperation.


WoodaPlus

WoodaPlus is a care group set up by patients to support less able patients of the Wooda Surgery. Justine Duhig is the Co-Ordinator and works at the surgery on a Monday and Thursday morning where you can contact her on 01237 427 813, at other times please leave her a message or contact the reception team on the main surgery number

They offer transport to and from the surgery or local hospital for elderly or infirm patients and can escort them to collect their pensions, take them shopping or to collect their prescriptions.  WoodaPlus can visit patients within their own homes if they are lonely and sit with terminally ill patients to give their carers a break.  They organise social events such as coffee mornings, cream teas and coach outings.

Wooda Plus request a nominal fee for their transport services and donations are always very much appreciated.  Part of their fundraising is by means of a “100 Club”.  Forms are available from reception.  In addition they hold an annual Christmas Raffle and Bazaar.

They are always looking for new volunteers who can help with any aspect of their service. Milage expenses are paid for. All WoodaPlus volunteers that come in to contact with vulnerable adults or children are subject to a DBS check.
